! >>> alpha natural resources says it will immediately close coal mines in west virginia and pennsylvania. this -- own water against president obama's war on coal. why is obama trying to destroy the coal industry? here now the west virginia congresswoman shelly morcapito. why is obama waging war on coal? >> i think he's being driven by an extreme environment by an lobby he doesn't like coal, he said if you build a coal plant, we're going to bankrupt you and he's following through on his promise. >> that means we will not have another new coal plant in our lifetime. that's the way experts have said it, that they'll never be able to get done what the epa wants to get done so there will be no new coal mines. >> so we're shutting out our most affordable, abundant resource. my state of west virginia will lose a lot and has lost a lot. >> a lot of states too. i get that, but what about the existing coal mines, shelley? tell me about that because the epa is writing regulations now and a lot of people from that industry say basically they're going to have shut down even existing coal plants. >> t

campaign polling today in three key state, ohio, florida and virginia, all shows president obama has a lead among likely voters. cnbc's own john harwood has the details, good evening, john. >> ever since both party conventions we've been focused on president obama's bounce in national polls. now we have swing say it numbers from the nbc "wall street journal" maris poll and they're good for president obama. he's taken a clear lead in three important battle grounds. first, the state of florida with 29 electoral votes, president obama leads romney 49-44%. ohio with 18 electoral votes, president obama leads by even more, 50-43% for mitt romney. in the state of virginia, president obama leads 49% to 44%, again over mitt romney. now, all three of these are states that were carried by president obama in 2008. mitt romney needs to take at least two of them away. maris pollster concluded this way. he said this election is now about mobilization rather than persuasion because so many voters are locked in and also, you'd rather be in president obama's shoes than mitt romney's at this point in these th

of polls out that show in battleground states particularly ohio, virginia and florida, romney is falling five, six, seven eight points behind. whereas is ras muse enpolls for those states shows its dead even and overall while some polls show a bounce for obama after the convention, rasmussen shows that that race head-to-head nationwide is dead even and that the bounce was very temporary. dick armey why these polls are so crazy. are the polls biased. is rasmussen the best along with pew and he said it's a different race. completely head-to-head even. >> personally have never been guided by polls but do i think insofar as there's any validity to these polls it goes back to the point you made earlier, governor romney needs to assert himself in a strong confident way as reagan did. i mean it's not -- it's no longer necessary to tell america that president obama is not up to the job. we know that. what he needs to do now is tell america in chapter and verse details how he is up to the job. and he hasn't really taken that step forward. i think some of the changes he's making, especially the ad

, okay? out in virginia, which is a very patriotic state because of all the military bases, here is obama touting something called economic patriotism. i just love this. what is economic patriotism? you know what it is, it's raise taxes on successful earners and small business owners in order to spend more on state and local government employees. that's economic patriotism? jack up tax rates on the successful in order to spend more on the unions? what's so patriotic about that? >> i love it when republicans want to wrap themselves in the flag, but defund everything that we do as a nation together. yes, you have to spend money on government. look at the union crisis in the nfl. it's like it's a problem if it hits something that people care about. well, union refs tend to be better than nonunion refs for a lot of reasons that we don't have the time to get into, and, yes, supporting our men and women in un for him, our firefighter, our police officers and our teachers, i would call that patriotism. >> actually i like that term economic patriotism. it's a term mitt romney should be using. for

of virginia and former democratic chairman is speaking behind me. this is the week when democrats begin to counter what they heard from republicans last week. and to answer that question, try to make the argument that president obama has done some good for the economy and that mitt romney would take it backwards in the next four years. now, the president is going to get some help from bill clinton tomorrow night in his speech in prime time. he's going to speak on thursday. but today, just like mitt romney a week ago, he's going to get some help from his wife who because she's nonpolitical is much more popular. president obama made reference to that today. >> i know that whatever i say here today, it's going to be at best a distant second to the speech you will hear tonight from the star of the obama family, michelle obama. you know, this is just like a relay and you start off with the fastest person. >> now, of course, you're also going to hear from the mayor of san antonio, rising star within the democratic party. one of the key swing votes in this election, larry. >> john, can you eve
